On Friday, April 16 the Asia Pacific and Middle East winners was announced, View the exciting awards announcement video here below!
Congratulations to Winners of Simulate to innovate Award Sponsored by Altair:
Winner: Team AVERERA, Indian Institute of Technology BHU – India
The winning team understood the virtual development process and leveraged simulation well. They addressed drag reduction through CFD, motor efficiency optimization by simulation with variables and validated with physical tests. Their focused approach on performance and weight reduction is commendable and the monocoque was analysed for critical load cases.
Runner-up: NV11 Nanyang Autonomous Venture, Nanyang Technological University – Singapore
The team addressed the challenge by simulating the major systems for structural integrity, CFD, thermal and kinematic analysis. Empirical calculations, constraints and load applications is captured very well. Acceptance criteria for critical parameters like temperature rise in battery pack are well defined and validation is done by empirical methods and simulations. Report is very well prepared.
